Are you involved in caring for someone with Dementia? Or are you working within the Care industry? This Dementia Care course has been designed and written for you – to give all care workers the essential knowledge needed to offer the very best professional approach to caring for people with dementia.
Dementia itself is not a single actual disease or illness, but is an umbrella term used to describe lots of different types of conditions, all of which have one thing in common; they attack and destroy the cells in the brains of people with dementia. Currently, 700,000 people in the UK have dementia and this figure is expected to double over the next few decades.
Being a carer can cause a mix of feelings. It can be both rewarding and challenging. If you look after someone with dementia, you may have many questions and worries.
You will develop a real understanding of the needs of people affected by the condition also benefiting from helping families to cope with the challenges that caring for someone with dementia brings about on a daily basis. This course will help you to become more effective in many aspects of your role. If you are looking to enhance your career development, this course will give you the opportunity to identify your career path within Care and support your learning requirements.
It is divided into seven units, each concentrating on an important aspect of the Principles of Dementia Care. To be awarded the NCFE Certificate in the Principles of Dementia Care, learners are required to successfully complete all seven units.
CACHE stands for the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education, and are the leading specialist Awarding Organisation for the Care and Education Sector.
I enjoy learning independently and have not needed much support although i know its there if needed. I am a carer and just love adding to my CV with courses.
Hoping to further my career with my course – really hope I will pass and so I can go onto the next level!
I would recommend this course, its very interesting, valuable and rewarding.
I very much appreciate your patience and fantastic customer service/student support. I feel rather silly referring to myself as a student, I’m 73 and enjoyed basket weaving at school!
As an older person who had a gap of over 25 years in studying, I’ve embraced the latest ways of learning! It’s easily done with the help of tutor support and the friendly and knowledgeable people at this college.
